    Can drinking too much water during the day be dangerous?

    If so, how much is too much?

    Kidneys can only do about 15 liters of water a day, so 16 liters seems like a good place to start :run:

    last year:

    OROVILLE, California -- Seven men are facing trial over the death of a California college student who died in a fraternity initiation.

    Chico State University student Matthew Carrington died in February after being ordered to drink water from five-gallon jugs as fans blasted him with cold air.


    Four members of the Chi Tau fraternity will stand trial for involuntary manslaughter. Three others face hazing charges.


    A defense attorney says the frat members didn’t know that drinking large amounts of water could be fatal.


    An autopsy found that Carrington died of an interrupted heartbeat brought on by “water intoxication.” He also suffered from brain swelling caused by drinking too much water and hypothermia.
